Emmanuel Nworie, a Nigerian man who resorted to petty cassava farming after graduating with a first class in mathematics, has left the shores of the country for the United States.
A university in Texas is sponsoring the young man for his PhD after he was discovered by a Nigerian man named Michael Taiwo.
In a tweet by Suraj Oyewale; who expressed a profound gratitude to Taiwo for discovering the young man.
Some Twitter users were excited for Nworie and they flooded the comment section to congratulate him.

@MTforChange for your interest in this young man. I pray this opens up even more doors for himself, his family, and his community and that in due time, he will pay it forward for others to benefit. Congrats!”
@OlayemiOlaoluwa commented: “Congratulations to him. I remembered when his case was mentioned here. Thanks to @MTforChange. God bless you sir. Greater heights.”
@TrendybyJ reacted: “I’m soo Happy for him…this is huge!!”
Recall it would have been better if he was into mechanized cassava farming. He graduated with a CGPA of 4.92/5.00 from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, UNN.
The 27-year-old brilliant Emmanuel lost his dad to diabetes and hypertension when he was still in secondary school, a situation that made life very difficult for him.
